Bogomtale fra forlaget.

This book is about the relationship between corporate governance regimes and labour management. It examines how finance and governance influence employment relationships, work organization, and industrial relations by means of a comparative analysis of Anglo-American, European, and Japanese economies. By drawing on a wide range of countries, the book is able to demonstrate the complexities of corporate governance arrangements and to present a more precise and nuanced exploration of the linkages between governance and labour management.

Readership: Researchers, academics, and advanced students of Management Studies, Industrial and Labour Relations, Organization Studies, Industrial Economics, Politics, and Sociology.
